Toshihide Maskawa (or Masukawa) ( Masukawa Toshihide, born February 7, 1940) is a Japanese theoretical physicist well-known for his work on CP-violation. His article "CP Violation in the Renormalizable Theory of Weak Interaction" written with Makoto Kobayashi is the third most cited high energy physics paper of all time as of 2006.[1] The Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix, which defines the mixing parameters between quarks, was the result of this work.

A native of Aichi Prefecture, Masakawa graduated from Nagoya University in 1962 and received a Ph.D from the same school in 1967.
